She married Wayne Rinne and they later divorced. She married Larry Fark on July 6, 1983, in Las Vegas and he survives her in Centralia.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents; and her son Anthony "Tony" W. Rinne.

Jean was a welcome face to diners and kept the restaurant running smoothly while working as a manager of the Centralia House. Retirement life brought time to enjoy a good game of cards with her Plaza Verde family. Jean also liked to get creative while coloring on her iPad, finding it a great way to relax. She was a supportive fan at her niece, Alyssa’s basketball games and liked to watch the motor cross events Alyssa and her nephew, Braxton participated in. Jean was a loving, proud Ma Ma and Nanny who meant the world to her grandchildren. Her best days and happiest memories were those times when she could gather with her whole family. Jean will forever be remembered for her loyalty, encouraging spirit, and generous heart.
